Orthopedics is a comprehensive medical specialty devoted to the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of injuries and diseases of your body's musculoskeletal system. This complex system includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves and allows you to move, work and be active. Your knees and hips have a wide range of motion and carry your full body weight which makes them susceptible to injury and arthritis.
With our staff of board-certified orthopedic surgeons, a new Surgery Center and an inpatient rehabilitation unit, orthopedics continues to grow at Garden City Hospital. The area’s aging population is living longer, more active lives, thus contributing to increased demand for joint repair and replacement. Garden City Hospital orthopedics offers the latest in these surgical techniques, including the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) system. This alternative to hip replacement allows patients to retain the hip bones and continue active lifestyles. The Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit, for patients who have more complex medical conditions, provides intensive therapy so patients can regain independence after surgery.
